Letter to the Editor: The misguided seduction of socialism

Over 100 million deaths are attributable to communist/socialist rule. Far from delivering utopia this form of government has delivered abject misery, now a new generation wants to give it a try.

Letter to the Editor: Socialists’ goals

Commentary: Say it ain’t so, Joe – it’s time to go

We got used to his serial gaffes long ago. “That’s just Joe,” his friends and supporters say about his latest gaffes. I’m not one to make fun of him by calling him “Sleepy Joe” or any of his other nicknames, but now I’m starting to feel sorry for Biden. He’s showing signs of mental confusion. […]
